Molly McLimans, 1 Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident in Harris County, TX
Harris County, TX -- February 19, 2023, Molly McLimans and another person were injured due to an accident where their vehicle crashed.
Authorities said that the incident happened just after midnight along FM 1960 at the intersection of Jone Road. Preliminary details say that 34-year-old Molly McLimans and a driver were in a Toyota Highlander traveling northbound on Jones Road. At FM 1960, three eastbound vehicles crashed into the Highlander.
Both McLimans and the driver of the Highlander had injuries said to be incapacitating. No one else appeared to be hurt. The cause of the crash can't be confirmed right now.
I certainly don't know more about this crash than what's available to the public, so it's not my place to say what did or didn't lead to the crash. Besides, something else stood out to me, and I'd be interested to know if anyone else caught this, as well.
This appears to have been a four-vehicle crash. Yet the only people with any listed injuries at all, not to mention serious ones, are in the same vehicle. It's not often occupants of a vehicle are seriously injured while others aren't unless there's a significant size disparity. It's obviously noteworthy that three different vehicles apparently hit the victims, but what prevented them from getting injured, and why didn't the same precautions protect the victims?
There are many reasonable explanations for this sort of event, but it's important to ask these questions in case something unusual like a defect contributed to the crash. Are steps being taken here to investigate those possibilities properly?
